It takes more than a good accountant to help a business idea grow and succeed.
There are many similarities between coaching and mentoring. Mentoring, particularly in its traditional sense, enables an individual to follow in the path of an older and wiser colleague who can pass on knowledge, experience and open doors to otherwise out-of-reach opportunities.
Coaching on the other hand is not generally performed on the basis that the coach has direct experience of their client's formal occupational role unless the coaching is specific and skills focused.
Through our sister company, Blue Lotus Coaching, we offer business coaching methods which are not about giving advice or telling clients what to do but are about coaxing people to 'grow out of themselves', to set themselves new goals and to achieve their dreams. The aim is to end up with goals which stretch the imagination to what is really possible and are not limited to the current perception of what is possible.
These goals will enhance self-confidence and interpersonal skills, and reduce the stress of 'not believing in oneself' because of what may have happened in the past. Everyone has had good and bad experiences in life. The only way forward from the bad ones is not to apportion blame to anyone, even to oneself, but to learn from them and move on. Our goal-setting methods test current concerns and set challenges to overcome any lack of self-confidence.
Even after the main work has been done, Blue Lotus will still be on hand to be a 'sounding board' for ideas or just to 'be there' for you.
We take pride in getting people on track to achieve their goals by unleashing the potential within them. As children, some people have great ideas of what they want to be when they grow up but are steered away by peer pressure and don't follow them through to fruition. Later in life they regret not going in the direction they wanted and feel stuck in a job which pays the bills but little else.
However, we are of the opinion that it is never too late to change direction and do the job you were born to do.
